Tombstone Tuesday -- Sylvester Kenyon (1710-1800) Buried in Sterling, Connecticut

I have collected a number of gravestone photographs from my own camera and from Find A Grave memorials over many years, and thought I would share them one at a time for Tombstone Tuesday.

Here is the gravestone of my 6th great-grandfather, Sylvester Kenyon (1710-1800) in Riverside Cemetery in Sterling, Connecticut:

I cannot read the inscription from the photograph; the Find A Grave memorial has:

In memory of 
Sylvester Kinyon Esq.
who died May 
3, 1800
in his 89th year

The source citation for this gravestone is:

Find a Grave, database and images (https://www.findagrave.com : accessed 29 June 2020), memorial page for Sylvester Kenyon (7 Apr 1710–9 May 1800), Find a Grave Memorial no. 39314115, citing Riverside Cemetery, Sterling, Windham County, Connecticut, USA ; Maintained by Marilyn Kenyon, Psy.D. (contributor 47005688) .

Thank you to Marilyn Kenyon for creating this Find A Grave memorial and to Robin for taking the photograph.

Sylvester Kenyon (1710-1800) and Anna Barber (1717-1800) 
are my 6th great-grandparents.   Sylvester was the son of John and Elizabeth (Remington) Kenyon, and Anna was the daughter of Moses and Susanna (West) Barber. They married in 1740 in North Kingstown, R.I., and had 6 children, including John Kenyon (1742-1831), my 5th great-grandfather, who married Ann Kenyon (1740-1824) in 1764.

A biographical sketch for Sylvester Kenyon is in
